I am not doing any alterations on my dress in an attempt to keep costs down. Fortunately, it fits perfectly. I'll be adding a crinoline skirt underneath (already have the skirt from my pageant days) and wearing 4 inch heels to deal with the length of the un-hemmed dress. What do I do with the train during the day though? It already has a loop on it to hold/put on my wrist, but I'm wondering if that's going to look strange or get annoying. I will be dying the crinoline blue so at least if it's going to be visible when I'm holding the loop, it doesn't look so much like underwear. Does anybody have any experience doing this or seeing this? Should I just add a bustle?

The train on mine seems to be a little bit longer than what's pictured here, presumably b/c my dress has not been hemmed.
